What We Believe About God

We believe that there is one true, holy God, eternally existing and expressing Himself in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity and characteristics of personality.  In the beginning God created the world and everything in it out of nothing and from that beginning He has been relentlessly desiring and pursuing a personal, intimate and eternal relationship with us, His children.

(Genesis 1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16,17)

What We Believe About Our Situation

We believe that, even though God created humans to live in relationship with Him, sin entered the world through the first man and woman, and our relationship with God was broken and distorted. Our continuing rebellion results in a severing of our relationship with God.  There was, and is, nothing we can do on our own to reestablish that union with our Father.  But we also believe that God did not abandon his creation to destruction and decay.  Rather, He promised to restore this broken world and bring His family back together.

(Romans 1-3)

What We Believe About Jesus

We believe that our longings to be reunited with our Father found their fulfillment in Jesus, born of a virgin, mysteriously God in the flesh. Jesus came to preach good news to the poor, to bind up the broken-hearted and set captives free. He lived a perfect life, proclaiming the arrival of the Kingdom. He was rejected by many, crucified, buried, and rose again. His death and resurrection bring hope to all creation. Through Jesus we have been forgiven, and through Jesus, God reconciles us to Himself. Through Jesus God puts His family back together. Jesus is the only way for this to happen, the only mediator between God and humans. To all who accept His sacrifice, obey His commands, and follow His example by being immersed, He gives the Holy Spirit, who leads us into all truth through a communal life of worship and a missional expression of our faith. 

(Matthew, Mark, Luke and John; Romans 5:1-11; Hebrews 4:14-16, 7:24-25

What We Believe About the Holy Spirit

The third person of God (Father & Son being the two others) is the Holy Spirit. We believe the Holy Spirit lives in every Christ follower. He lives and moves and is a source of assurance, strength and wisdom.  He equips and empowers each with talents and abilities for the purpose of building up God’s kingdom. 

(John 14 & 16; Acts 2; Romans 8)

What We Believe About the Bible

We believe the Bible to be the voices of many who have come before us, inspired entirely by God to continue to speak to us today. We believe the Bible is entirely accurate, complete and reliable. God calls us to immerse ourselves in this authoritative narrative and to continue to faithfully live out that story today as we are led by the Spirit.

(2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

What We Believe About the Church

We believe there is one true church, universal, comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We believe the church is called to engage the culture and to put the resurrected Christ, who lives in and through us, on display to a broken and hurting world. We believe that God works through the church to bring His family back together through Jesus Christ by making and teaching people to be disciples of Jesus.

(Acts 1-12; Matthew 5:13-16)

What type of church is FCC?

We are a non-denominational church with people from all backgrounds (no church affiliation, Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.). Whether you’ve been attending church for years or this is your first time, you’ll feel welcome at FCC.



Our Mission:

We are doing our best to follow Jesus’ orders that He left for the church.  We teach people to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey Jesus’ commands.  

Our prayers and our financial support through Faith Promise are how we complete our mission to the world.  The missionaries that we support around the world are working in places that we will probably never go… unless you’re interested?

The great commission, in Matthew 28:18-20, doesn’t speak of just going to other countries and lands. It tells the church to make and teach disciples of Jesus right in their own back yards. That’s our community. That’s Wayne County. Of course, we have Sunday services, Sunday School classes, and Life Groups (small groups of people who meet to study the Bible and how it applies to their lives), but that’s not all we do.

When it comes to our mission to the church who meets at 100 W. Center Street in Fairfield, Peter sums it  up pretty well in 1 Peter 4:8-11.  Peter tells us that we are all an important part of the church and, if FCC is to be the church that God intends it to be, we all have a place that we need to serve here at FCC.  He also teaches us that there is no such thing as an “unimportant” role.

Do we get it right all the time?  No.  But we are trying to find ways for everyone to use their gifts to build up the kingdom of God.  When that happens, our local “body of Christ” becomes complete… becomes whole. And that takes all of us, using the gifts and the talents that God has given to us,  to bring God the glory that He deserves and to make the church, FCC Fairfield and the church around the world, the “body” that God designed it to be.
